'Criminal Minds' set to end after 15 seasons on CBS

The

A fan-favorite in reruns and on streaming, "Criminal Minds" has seen its linear ratings slip over time, with the now airing season averaging a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, according to Nielsen's live-plus-same-day numbers.

When the curtains come down for the last time, the show's run will consist of 324 episodes, which would put it in the top 20 for longest-running scripted primetime television series in the US. The series was created by Jeff Davis and is executive produced by Mark Gordon, Erica Messer, and Breen Frazier.

Criminal Minds is now more than halfway through Season 14, which is supposed to end on a much happier note than Season 15's ominous beginning: Rossi (Joe Mantegna) is heading down the aisle.

There aren't many shows at all that get to enjoy a 15-season run on television. Prior to that, series star Thomas Gibson was sacked from the show after an on-set altercation with a producer.

It was clear that CBS had a major hit on its hands. Cast shakeups and behind-the-scenes drama have been the standard on "Criminal Minds" for the past several years.

Of course, as with most dramas of its ilk, the series also delves into the personal lives of its characters, dealing with their struggles as they grapple with the heaviness of their career. I know a lot of people my parents' age still enjoy the show to this day. It has suffered from a few controversies in its long time on the air, including an altercation with a producer which resulted in actor Thomas Gibson being fired. Seems like something that might be worth binging.
